Adelyn is at a new school this year and is always wanting to play with the new friends she made. The trouble is, I don't know these girls or their moms. So we decided to host a Valentine's party on February 4th to get to know them. We also invited her "old" friends and ended up having 16 girls come over to decorate cookies, craft, and play games. It was so much fun!
We set up a little photo booth and had fun playing in it before the guests arrived. My mom was in town for a week and was a HUGE help for this party!
Love, love, love my family!
Food was simple- goldfish, yogurt dipped pretzels with sprinkles, and fruit (strawberries, raspberries, and purple grapes) with pink lemonade
As the girls arrived, they did the photo booth
Next they decorated cookies with icing and sprinkles
James's teacher is an amazing baker. She baked 2 dozen heart shaped cookies and made her famous icing. The girls really took their time creating their cookie masterpieces
After the cookies, they were free to do the other activites. I set up the kitchen table with paper, foam hearts, paper heart masks to decorate, stickers galore, colored pencils, crayons, and markers. They were free to do whatever!
Minute to Win It: How many candy hearts can you transfer using chopsticks?
Of course, they played upstairs in her room and playroom
It ended with a Dance Party (after we played musical hearts). These girls loved the Trolls Soundtrack!
This was such a fun party! After it was over, Adelyn said, "You're the best mommy" and that made it all worth it. I don't think I could attempt this with 16 boys! These girls were so well mannered and easy to have over. I'm so thankful Adelyn has these friends!
